Living Butter Lettuce - can this be done at home??

Hydroponically grown in greenhouse.
Pesticide free with roots on & no dirt.
Living lettuce, for the ultimate in taste & freshness

How in the world do they grow this lettuce? Is the whole thing started in the plastic container or what? Does anyone know how to grow lettuce at home in this manner?

I never have any luck with growing lettuce - too many varmints/pests, too hot, too get the picture.
